About ISOC-DC

The Greater Washington D.C. Chapter of the Internet Society (ISOC-DC) is a membership organization that seeks to further the mission of the Internet Society (ISOC) in the District-Maryland-Northern Virginia metropolitan area by serving as a hub for education and discussion concerning the important issues confronting the future of the Internet.

Over the past several years the Washington DC Chapter of the Internet Society (ISOC-DC) has gained a global reputation for excellence in programming. For the past three years ISOC-DC has proudly served as the Secretariat and organizational home of the IGF-USA (Internet Governance Forum for the United States). The annual conferences during these years are widely recognized as the most successful in the IGF-USA’s history.

The Internet Policy Forum (IPF) is an initiative undertaken by ISOC-DC that seeks to leverage our chapter’s many successes and further develop the infrastructure needed to build a sustainable and scalable forum that can serve as a hub for discourse concerning the key issues confronting the Internet.
